Frequently Asked Questions
Gut Health is a very new practice on helping clients to heal. My method is simple, I use the Trifecta of Wellness, nutrition, exercise and meditation to formulate a plan that helps you to tap into your “gut’s intuition” on what is healing you while learning to keep away from what is hurting you.
Why would I use a Gut Health Coach vs a Nutritionist/Dietician?
As a certified Health Coach, I am not only helping you formulate meal plans, but overwell wellness plans. This includes exercise and meditation.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance. However, I do work on a sliding scale in my pricing so that I am able to work with clients that are the right fit. My goal is to support those that are looking to heal.
What can I expect?
Doctors are taught how to diagnose and treat disease. And although they are great at recommending patients lose weight, exercise more, or eat a healthy diet, typically they offer little advice on how to accomplish this beyond joining a gym or see a nutritionist. A well-trained health coach is educated regarding behavior change, and uses a science based process to facilitate that change. Right now anyone can say he or she is a health coach, I am however certified and educated in nutrition, exercise, meditation, and yoga since 2003.
What is difference between what I do and a dietician?
Health coaching is structured to provide the necessary time to be successful at behavior change. Coaching generally occurs over the course of 5-7 sessions with each session lasting from 30-60 minutes. The majority of physicians do not have a practice structure that accommodates this type of interaction. This is clearly a substantial financial investment, but the result of better health is worth it in the end.
Is health coaching for everyone?
Health coaching is a very useful tool to achieve behavior change and help reduce the burden of chronic conditions like obesity, depression, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, and diabetes.
Is health coaching worth it
The scary truth is that half of all U.S. adults have an expensive-to-treat chronic disease like cancer, diabetes or heart disease, which account for 86 percent of all healthcare spending, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). While not every chronic disease is preventable, the CDC estimates that eliminating the three biggest risk factors – poor diet, smoking and inactivity – would prevent 80 percent of stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes and 40 percent of all cancer.
Can we have a consultation before I decide?
Absolutely! Once we begin there is no refund, therefore I like to make sure we are a good fit. If you are even questioning if this is something you should do, then let’s set up time to discuss.
About My Services
I offer 2 programs: Reboot Your Gut Health 3-month Program and Heal + Rebuild Gut Health 6-month Program.
Body Mind Support
All of my programs are designed to support body mind health. I use gut healing as a method of helping your body rebuild it’s microbiome so that you can tap into the benefits this has on your cravings, your moods and your memory.
Science is now calling your gut your “second brain”. It has been proven that your gut sends messages to your brain and together a decision is formulated. That is why if the gut is healthy, the brain is healthy.
Post Natal Support
I am a mom of 2-boys. I know what it takes to recover. After you give birth, every single organ in your body will need to recover. This includes your brain, heart
Your gut is your second brain. It is where 95% of your seratonin is produced. It is where inflammation thrives. And it is what sends the message to your brain to crave unhealthy foods. Your gut also is intuitive. It sends you signals when you need to fight or flight, it helps to motivate you and it helps your brain to remember. Therefore, if it is in bad shape, meaning poor microbiota, then you may feel depressed, anxious, foggy brained, or suffering from disease. That is why I my Health Coaching approach is through your gut.
